Jags suffer loss against Miami Dolphins
MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Dolphins kept former teammate Chad Henne out of the end zone, making three fourth-down stops deep in their own territory and benefiting from an odd penalty in beating the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-3 Sunday.
Henne, playing in Miami for the first time since he departed as a Dolphins bust last offseason, threw for 221 yards with no turnovers. But the Dolphins turned back three scoring threats, and a go-ahead touchdown for the Jaguars came off the board because of an illegal-substitution penalty.
Ryan Tannehill went 22 for 28 for 220 yards and two scores with no interceptions to help Miami (6-8) win for only the second time in the past seven games. The Jaguars (2-12) helped their chances of getting the No. 1 draft pick next April.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Jaguars arrived in South Florida on Saturday and prepared to take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at 1pm on CBS47.
The Jaguars enter the game with a 2-11 record while the Dolphins are 5-8. The story line in this game is the return of Chad Henne to play against his former team. Henne started 31 games the last four season with the Dolphins before entering free agency and signing with the Jags in the offseason.
Henne will start his fourth consecutive game for the Jags since taking over for an injured Blaine Gabbert against the Houston Texans.
The Jaguars will once again play without Maurice Jones-Drew and they will be without cornerback Aaron Ross and defensive end George Selvie.
The Jags could have wide receiver Cecil Shorts back in action against the Dolphins. He missed last week with a concussion.
